There is an old adage that says “a good day is always seen in the morning.” Well, for Siacoin this good is Thursday 4. The altcoin opened the session making an incredible upward movement using the established short-term support at $0.0074.

Siacoin sprung up during the session on Wednesday 3 while it embraced the support of the bullish trendline as observed on the chart.
Unfortunately, the price lost momentum on testing $0.0082 prematurely ending the trip to the moon. At the time of writing, SC/USD has broken below the bullish trendline support as well as the weak support at $0.0078. The price is changing at $0.00775 amid an ongoing bearish trend. Although Siacoin price is still trading above the moving averages, the stochastic on the hourly chart is heading south. This signals that bears are gaining ground against the buyers. However, if the bulls can defend the next support target at $0.0076, the gains will occur towards the intraday resistance at $0.0082.
